Fancy learning archaeology hands-on, excavating in the outer bailey of the medieval Nottingham Castle? Our excavation uncovers new information about the castle site while offering people of all backgrounds the opportunity to get involved in archaeology.

Through close tutor support and carefully designed hands-on workshops all trainees will be excavating within an hour – including absolute beginners!

We Dig the Castle is for people with all levels of experience whether you have or are working towards a qualification in archaeology, are a Time Team fan, or just want to try something new.

With our timetabled day of induction, skills tutorials, task-based workshops, and excavation, trainees will be able to see immediately how their skills have developed. Gain skills in areas including excavation techniques, site recording, survey and laser scanning, post-ex, processing artefacts and managing environmental samples.

Our Saturday training session offers the same high-quality, small group, training as our weekday sessions. Come along as a one-off, or combine it with other days at the dig.
